On 9 September 2014, UK and South Africa launched a Newton Fund for science and technology collaboration in Parliament, Cape Town. This new partnership is based on the principles of co-ownership and co-responsibility. The UK-South Africa Newton Fund will bring together contributions from both sides to support science, technology and innovation, creating a catalyst to stimulate socio-economic development in South Africa and more widely across sub-Saharan Africa. Both countries will also be looking actively to work closely with other African countries in this initiative.
